What Is It?

By bayesp
This image was taken at Kew gardens, I thought it was a Golden Pheasant but after checking in a book i'm not so sure, any ideas?

Could be one of the many hybrid varieties, normal pheasant crossed with golden pheasant. It produces all sorts of colours and markings.
Pretty sure it's a hen.

Think it is a golden pheasant... but it's moulted. You can just see the new set appearing... thanks to good focus! Might be a young one just coming into his first grown-up suit!
